More About This Wine

The nose is intense and inviting here, with ripe pear, red apple and sweet spices. The palate is rich, complex and round combining the green, fresh acidity of citrus and to the ripeness of white melon, nectarine. An emotional, evocative, intense wine, that carries its weight with lightness and elegance and ends with a dense, rich mineral finish. To pair with gastronomic dishes of white fish, semi-dry goat cheeses and, of course, oysters.

Hows it's made

The harvest is de-stemmed and taken to the press using a conveyor belt to avoid bruising the fruits. Natural vinification with indigenous yeasts. Work in the vinery respects the lunar calendar according to the biodynamic method.
